Detached knotted cable chain stitches

Today’s samples deal with detached knotted cable chain stitches. I saw them as a way to couch other threads and to bead a little. I also experimented with adding more loops.

Below is a twig I had fun making. The stitching sort of folds back and forth on itself. I see a lot of room for doing more with this. There may be an expanded idea in Monday’s post.
